Environmental Law Society

The Environmental Law Society (ELS) is a group of students interested in environmental protection. ELS hosts a number of speakers to discuss green policy issues. Law professors, scientists, litigators (in large firms, small firms and nonprofits), environmental advocates and other professors have all been ELS speakers. We also organize a variety of activities to engage students in environmentally-related pursuits, such as decreasing carbon footprints, buying organic and enjoying the environment we work to conserve.

The popular used book sale, held every quarter before the mad rush to buy brand new textbooks, is run by ELS in partnership with Greenbooks.
